This is so Hard

Saturday, February 18, 2012

So I started my diet back yesterday. I did really good and went to the gym. Unfortunately where I am there is nothing healthy. I count on my bf to help me with that but unfortunately he isnt the best bf in the world. Today he tried to get me to go to Taco Bell. I told him I just started my diet back. Im trying my hardest this time to succeed in this. He dont care because he has never been overweight his whole life. I always break down because I have absolutely no support here. I have over a 100 pounds to lose. I just want to be healthy and happy and its so hard with nobody there for me. Especially the person that always tells me he loves me. emoticon

    You're not alone. I understand the feeling when you're surrounded by people who are thin although they eat whatever they want and get away with it, so they couldn't possibly understand that 1 lousy dinner for us means 1 pound up tomorrow morning. And, yes, it's very hard to resist. Focus on your goals, don't give up, think about what is really important - a taco or a pound less this week?Imagine that feeling when you step on a scale after working hard all week and seeing a pound gone!No food is worth missing that feeling.Lately, I imagine what I would feel AFTER eating something unhealthy - sad, angry at myself, depressed, disappointed - and I decide it's just not worth it.Good luck with your goals! emoticon

    I completely understand! My husband loves all my fave foods and loves to encourage eating them...even though he needs to lose alot of weight too... and beyond him i have my mom who loves junk food (at her whopping 135lb self) you can do it! if you ever need a chat, or a sparkbuddy, i'm here for ya! as much as we want our men to support us, sometimes they just don't, or don't know how...thats why us sparkers have each other :D emoticon

    I understand you completely. I was in a relationship where he was constantly expecting me to lose weight, yet he ate horrible (and even worse... he had a high metabolism so he could get away with it). Luckily, I did the grocery shopping so I could buy healthy foods, but it doesn't help when you're watching others eat the foods you're still craving. I had gotten to the point where I had fast food for 3 meals a day (5 when I was really depressed for awhile). It was really hard to break that habit... it truly became an addiction. However, I did break it and once in awhile I'll get a fast food, but it's usually not at all as good as I remembered it being. There are honestly delicious recipes that are healthy. Maybe you guys can cook some of these meals together, or you cook for him and yourself. Try new things. I try to find favorite meals and figure out a way to make them healthier.

    Well let's change your mindset! Don't think of this as a destination think of it as a journey! I too had over 100 pounds to lose 2 years ago. I couldn't see it and I didn't have any support at all. The thing is that you can find something to eat everywhere! It might not be as healthy as planned, but you can do it. For example, at Taco Bell...look at the Fresco items:) A Crunchy Taco is only 170 calories BTW:) I just myfitnesspal to track calories before I go out to eat. Don't give up on yourself of this process! Trust me I am a 177 pounds down and still losing! Goodluck on your journey!
